Book Review ~ The Portable Patriot by Joel Miller

I think it’s very important to look at history and learn what our forefathers thought and did. I think it’s especially important to look at it from a Christian worldview. The Portable Patriot isn’t a made up tale. It’s history. It’s a compile of letters, sermons, and documents that are OUR history.The words in it were written by men like John Adams, William Bradford, and Miles Standish. They were read by men like George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. Now we can read it.

The Portable Patriot is subtitled Documents, Speeches and Sermons that compose the American Soul. That is a great way to explain this book. You could call it a miniature history textbook. It’s a great way to learn about what life was like then.

However, this is in the English that our forefather’s spoke, so please be advised that it may be hard to understand in some parts. I would suggest this book for young adults to adults. This is a great resource to have on hand as well!

According to new laws, I’m required to say that I got this book for free from Thomas Nelson in exchange for a review. I am not required to give a favorable review.
